What's Your American Icon?

Sausalito Art Festival American Icon Art Competition Announced

SAUSALITO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/14 -- What's your American icon? The 2014 Sausalito Art Festival American Icon Art Competition invites artists of every caliber throughout the world, to express their vision of America using their mobile device.

The competition requires you to photograph an image that represents your individual idea of what an American icon is. Is your vision a '65 Mustang Convertible or the Golden Gate Bridge? Is it Steve Jobs or Mount Rushmore? Is it Beyonce, a buffalo on the range, or a NYC fireman? What is your American Icon?

The competition gives artists of all levels the unique platform to express their vision of America. It is up to the artist to choose an image(s) that in their minds is iconic of America based on their personal experiences, upbringing and beliefs. There's only one caveat: your American Icon image must be captured on a mobile device. Which means almost everyone in the world, professional, amateur, student, or social networking mavens can participate. It's that simple.

The mission of the Sausalito Art Festival's American Icon Art Competition is to foster through art, the personal expression of iconic American imagery, from people of all artistic skill levels and backgrounds. It's an opportunity for all artists, both professional and amateur to be part of the prestigious Sausalito Art Festival.

There are two ways to enter:

  • If you think you have a creative winning image, you may enter the competition for $9.99 for the first image and $0.99 each for up to 2 add'l images and compete for cash awards and deserved recognition. Whether you are a professional or amateur, you'll be part of the digital American Icon exhibit at the Sausalito Art Festival. Simply submit your image at www.americanicon.net

    The images entered into the official competition will be judged by an esteemed panel of artists and other professionals for creative, thought provoking, contemporary and historical significance, as well as artistic and creative merit.
  • Just want to share your iconic images and inspirations? Share them via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #MyAmericanIcon and be part of the "People's Pick" competition; get the most "likes" and win a VIP festival experience. Or, we encourage you to visit www.americanicon.net to upload your images for the People's Pick Contest.

    Winning images will also earn a coveted place in the innovative American Icon multi-media, digital exhibition at the Sausalito Art Festival, Labor Day Weekend, August 30-September 1. Winners will also be awarded a VIP Festival experience and swag bag. Winners will be announced in mid-August.

There are a few guidelines (major manipulation of images is not allowed) but for more information, competition guidelines and to submit images, go to www.americanicon.net.

About the Exhibition and Competition
Inaugurated as part of the 60th anniversary of the Sausalito Art Festival in 2012, the competition was conceived as a way to welcome artists of all skill levels to exhibit at the festival, unrestricted by geography and focusing on a different theme every year that celebrates one of the world's most recognized icons. Last year, that icon was the American Flag; in 2012 it was the Golden Gate Bridge.

Every work of art submitted to the American Icon Art Competition C will be included in the presentation video at the SAF as well as on the American Icon website, www.americanicon.net, enabling those who cannot attend the Sausalito Art Festival and American Art Icon Exhibition to see all of the images.

The exhibition will be on display in a dedicated exhibit venue on the festival site at Marinship Park along the Sausalito waterfront, presented on a large-format screen as a high-definition video with a special dedicated sound score. The entire American Icon show -- from digital submissions to digital exhibit, makes the competition very global and very green; there is no shipping, no travel, no fossil fuel expended.
